The US President Donald trump said that he did not intend to discuss their military plans in Syria with the Russian leader Vladimir Putin. He said this in an interview with The New York Times that was published on Wednesday, April 5.
“I never talk about what you do in the military. I argued against this approach for many years,” said trump.
Earlier, the us leader has commented on the chemical attack in the Syrian province of Idlib, which killed at least 58 people, injured about 200. He blamed the incident on the head of the Arab Republic Bashar al-Assad and stated that this situation has changed his attitude towards the Syrian President.
Trump also noted that the “heinous acts” Assad — the result of weak policy of the administration of his predecessor Barack Obama.
The confrontation between the Syrian President and rebels seeking his overthrow, has been running since 2011. The conflict escalated into full-scale civil war, which strengthened the terrorist organization, including Islamic state. The international coalition led by the United States in 2014 is conducting in Syria operation against ISIS. The Russian space forces began strikes on militants in that country in the autumn of 2015.
